Mike Gale from Co-Pilgrim and Ilona V releasing an album together. Now there’s a blast from the past, but a very welcome one. They made an EP many many moons ago, which I liked a lot. If you are a really long time visitor you might even remember my really passionate affection towards the songs of Ilona V. Nothing has changed during the years. I still adore those songs and I’m still convinced that some reissue label will find those songs in 2030 or something and then we will appreciate Ilona V like we do Sibylle Baier today.
Back to 2016 for the time being. The UK-label Battle Worldwide Recordings recently released Dream Pool by Mike Gale & Ilona V and it’s beautiful. This is Barbed Vane, my early favourite from the album.
